Cooking & Living the Daufuskie Gullah Way with Sallie Robinson

Experience authentic Gullah culture through the eyes of a true native.



"Sallie Ann Robinson combines a memoir of growing up with her nine siblings [on Daufuskie Island] and down-to-earth recipes to cover each meal of the day. Most of her remembrances involve chores and the fertile life of the island, though she includes a fine chapter on 'Folk Beliefs and Home Remedies.'. . . As for the recipes, each could be filed under one or more of the three S's: simple, soul food or seafood."
--Publishers Weekly

"Cooking the Gullah Way follows the rhythm of a typical day on Daufuskie Island. . . . The book immerses the reader in this culture through Robinson's personal stories and family recipes."
--Raleigh News & Observer

"Through her books, [Robinson] helps keep culture alive. The unique organization of her book . . . impresses that Gullah is an entire way of life, not just a way to cook. . . . Spend some time with [Robinson] yourself . . . and you'll feel marvelously satisfied in both your belly and your heart."
--Ann Arbor News


"Cooking the Gullah Way is a last glimpse of a fading culture."
--Gastronomica

"Along with down-home recipes ranging from Momma's Cracking Muffins to Country Fried Fish with Grits, Robinson includes more reminiscences and anecdotes about her extended family as well as a chapter on Gullah folk beliefs and home remedies of all sorts."
--Library Journal

"From their down-home names to their rich flavors, the recipes allow us all to savor Robinson's taste of Gullah culture and to recreate her world in our own."
--Jessica B. Harris, from the Foreword
